Here is a track from "Another Mind", this one is actually from the album. BTW I dont think the Sonicbloom versions of the "Another Mind" songs are much different than the studio (in terms of compositions)




this one is Kung Fu World Champion from "Brain"

'Kung Fu Champion' is pure Classic Fusion, and you can tell probably the rest of the album is too.
'Binary' has a funk jazz fusion section mixed with a Contemp styled piano section, overall I would call this Classic Fusion too.

Here is whats going on. When Hiromi was imported, her albums were given the default tag of Post Fusion Contemp because that is a genre that a lot of her music falls into. Unfortunately it looks like no collab who has knowledge of her individual albums has gone through and fixed her album tags yet.

If any of our esteemed collabs who are familiar with her albums want to, they should go ahead and fix those genre tags.

When I came here I noticed Time Control was a pure Classic Fusion album. I fixed that tag

The other 2 albums I have are Another Mind and Brain. I havent listened to these as much as Time Control, but today I listened to both.

Another Mind can possibly be changed to Classic Fusion, as there are a bunch of cuts that fit the description.

Although I posted Kung Fu World Champion, in going through the album Brain, I can honestly say it is more like half classic fusion, half post-fusion/contemporary; with more of the latter than the former.

I will change Another Mind to Classic Fusion, but I think I will leave Brain as it is right now. There are some hot fire cuts on Brain, but there is more stuff that reminds me of Chick Corea's solo albums (the non-fusion ones)
